Women's History in Buffalo and Western New York Collection (State University of New York at Buffalo)
University Archives has several areas of collecting focus. Women’s History in Buffalo and Western New York was launched as the Women’s Archives Project (WAP) in 1977 by then university archivist Shonnie Finnegan. One year prior to the establishment of the WAP, the Social Welfare History Archives Center at the University of Minnesota embarked on a census of women’s history sources across the country, surveying archivists, manuscript curators, and other historical agencies. One of the repositories surveyed was UB’s University Archives. 21 collections and record groups were identified as having material regarding women’s history, laying the groundwork for the WAP.
